Latest Updates

So I have the internet all set up here finally which is a huge relief. I have my reserve duty this month and the last thing any crew needs is to be left on home standby with no internet, no tv and nothing to keep one's sanity in check for 8 hours. And as promised, ages ago, here are the photos from the rest of the Toronto trip.


Poutine, which my friend Andrew (who spent some time in Edmonton for a bit) recommended I try. They sell this stuff everywhere, from your standard Burger King style take away outlets, to gastro pubs where they chuck in Duck confit and use organic potato chips or whatever they can get away with. As you can see I went for the cheapo variety and I was not impressed. Actually I spent the flight back to Dubai drinking everything I could that would eliminate the foul taste from my mouth, without much success. I was later told by one of the Canadian crew that it was more a late night meal better accompanied with beer type of delicacy, which explained a lot.




Bata Shoe Museum. More interesting than it looks and sounds.

Native American Moccasins


A proper NASA Astronaut Boot. Very very cool.


Frank Gehry-designed National Museum of Canada


Old Town Hall, with an ice skating rink nearby


New Town Hall? Cannot remember to be honest, poutine van in front was distracting me.



View from atop CN Tower. I took photos from the glass floor, but to be honest they're not that good, and I found it quite disappointing. Maybe I've been spending too much time in the air.


Any Cannucks eager to help me with this one?
